IPED Conference: Affordable Housing and Community Development: Finding resources and creating opportunities in 2010
November 5–6, 2009
The W Hotel
Why You Should Attend
The year 2010 brings many new opportunities and challenges to our industry. The liquidity crunch created by the global economic crisis continues to affect our industry—making it even more difficult to develop affordable housing around the country. At the same time, changes in policy at HUD and the implementation of the incentives in the stimulus package have dramatically changed how affordable housing and community development deals get done. Led by industry experts, this conference will provide candid insights, observations, and real-life examples for how to address these issues in a changing economy. It will convene some of the most experienced developers, financiers, technical experts, policy makers, and advocates who are redefining how affordable housing and community development are being developed in this country.
Topics covered throughout this conference will encompass some of the most important obstacles and opportunities associated with developing affordable housing in 2010 and beyond, including
- leveraging federal programs available for affordable housing,
- capitalizing on the Credit Exchange and TCAP,
- opportunities and challenges for housing preservation,
- assessing the state of the debt and equity markets,
- updates on industry initiatives to expand the tax credit investor market,
- increasing profits with green technologies, and
- creative methods to raise equity capital in uncertain times.
